    Fiesta Price Hike

    Don't forget the exchange rate. Most Ford cars for our market are built in mainland Europe and imported / paid for in Euro. The pound has weakened against the Euro which will cause a price rise in anything we import.

    Help needed tuning a fiesta ecoboost to Stage 2/3

    Cheaper / easier to sell it and buy an ST :-)

    Ford Fiesta Ecoboost Titanium 5dr

    The Ecoboost coolant failures are mainly Focus related due to a dodgy hose. The same problem is not evident in Fiesta as it has a different coolant system layout.

    Interior Box not sticking

    Its the GPS aerial. Ford SYNC with Emergency Assistance An important and potentially life-saving part of Ford SYNC is Emergency Assistance‡. In the unlikely event of an accident, where the airbag is deployed or the fuel-pump deactivated, the technology can use a Bluetooth®-paired and connected mobile phone to automatically make a direct call to the Emergency Services for you. You can choose to stop the call, or talk to those services if you need to. Crucially, the system will supply vital information, such as your GPS coordinates, even if you are unconscious.

    1.0 ecoboost owners - do you obey The Arrow?

    No - ignore it completely. I still average around 48 MPG in a Titanium 125 PS.

    Next generation Fiesta

    Looking at the published price list I think I will go for the ST Line X 3 door 140 with spare wheel, camera and reverse sensors, Red body / Black roof + matching ST Line X red pack interior, Comfort pack, Driver assistance pack. I would never consider a car without a spare so the B&O is out, as is the roof.
  10. I see the Mk 8 details and config. are going live
  11. I take a size 12 and don't find the pedals too much of a problem. Guess I have driven far worse cars over the years :-)

    Alarm armed indicator & hello

    There is no alarm armed light on later models. The flashing red light on older models has been deleted and the start / stop engine indicator (where fitted) is in its place.

    Folding Mirrors - annoyance

    They do. The switchgear is redesigned. You simply push the down button with the selector switch in the middle (neutral position)

    Wiper blade size for MK7.5?

    Correct size for Mk 7.5 is 16" passenger. The design was modified slightly (basically a bent arm) to allow a bigger sweep of the passenger side of windscreen.

    Mk7 all 3 rear lights are out

    I would start with the bulbs. Change one and see if it works.
